Fazıl Say and the Classical Music Stage as Informal Learning Space

Second, revised edition


Aylin Buran

Fazıl Say and the Classical Music Stage as Informal Learning Space is an exploration of the classical music stage within a framework of informal learning through the interactive concert performances of Fazıl Say. It delves into the artist’s conceptualization of the music-audience nexus along with his motivation for adopting an interactive manner that emerges through a verbal interaction between performer and listener during the concert performances. Using specific concert performances given in Malatya in Turkey, this book presents a detailed demonstration of such a space as a learning medium; and interprets its pedagogical meaning from both the artist’s and the audience’s perspectives.
